Faun-- Zeigeist [...]
Just catching up with this thread, and wanted to say I like this.
I'd never have known about Faun if you hadn't posted this. Thanks.

Edit: Played a few more Faun songs. Liked them all. Now I find out there's a whole genre: "Folk Pagan", "Dark Wave", or "Ethereal Wave" that's been around for decades. Geez, I need several more lifetimes to explore all of this. Just wish my German was a bit better. :frown:

Hey, WBN and Micro: I'm curious to know what do you guys think of Faun?

While we're at it (considering it's the greatest movie ever made):
[A Clockwork Orange]
Uh-oh... I'm surprised you haven't been beaten to a pulp by the feminists yet...

I went to a screening of this at an arts cinema 20 yrs after it was made. Didn't take long for (more than few) females to storm out of the theatre in disgust during the first rape scene (although this didn't happen when I saw the movie went it first came out). Can't say I blame them, really, even though the scenes are a bit tame by today's standards.

Still find it quite hard for my auditory processing center of my brain to following the climactic part of the music that's playing when Alex is getting drops in his forcibly-open eyes. Now there's a weird piece of music.

Used in another movie. [Tubular Bells]
I love that too. Would often have it playing loud on long car trips at night. :approve:

Haha man I wish I could show you my recent facebook convo with a really feminist friend of mine. I may as well have gotten beaten to a pulp.

People are just too sensitive. It's just a movie. They get offended by everything, sometimes just to give their day some purpose.

Depends on what's been injecting into a person's psyche during their formative years. Rules in the super-ego, commanding and directing passions from the id. Deep, deep fears rooted in childhood.

It's not just about giving their day some purpose. There's a lot more to it than that.

(Yes, I've been studying the rudiments of psychology recently. Fascinating, and more than a bit scary.)

[Marilyn Manson]
You really think that's a "best song"? :eek:

BTW, what do you think of "Ghost in the Shell"? I particularly like the song "Inner Universe" which was the theme song for the "Stand Alone Complex" anime series.

If by "Ghost in the Shell" you mean the manga series, then I used to read it all the time as a kid. I loved it. Now I'm feeling all nostalgic :[

I love that song as well.

That song reminds me of a band the kids made me go see a few years back.

http://vimeo.com/36634127 [Broken] (ok to skip)

Ok, maybe just visually. Just went in the kitchen and listened. There are absolutely not acoustical similarities between those two songs.

hmmmm......

Whatever happened to good old fashioned science nerd music?

Happy Saturday everyone! And to my Brit friends, go give Cleo a big hug and smooch for me. And let her know that I've loved her voice, from the moment I first heard it. :smile:
